5:34 pm
laundering money. >> what we should do, i've been to the border back in april. we need to work with mexico and our drug policy does not include from this president a requirement of mexico to eliminate and eradicate its drugs in mexico. so i plan on working with the ambassador of mexico to try to address its own drug cartels. then you need to have the border secured not just on illegal immigration because almost a hundred percent of the heroin coming in is coming across that southern border. if you do those two things you're going to see a decline, massive decline in the supply. the third thing we need to do is better interdiction on our side. we're only interdicting 3% to 5% of drugs coming across our
